Title: Snack Bar Art Deco Animation (from Drive-In Movie Ads)
Description: Simple animated text messages with colorful art deco backgrounds. The first being footage of sparkly waves. Then hand painted art deco geometric abstracts. The message of course is to visit the theater's refreshment stand. Music only, no announcer.
This clip is from a compilation of drive-in intermission films found here on Internet Archives in the Drive-In Movie Ads section. Most are color but there are a few black & whites because of their quality or uniqueness.
PLEASE NOTE: These clips have been modified from the originals. They have been carefully cropped to remove excess black frame while preserving as much of the actual image as possible. I've adjusted the brightness/contrast, and color correction to the best of my ability. Magenta tinted films were especially difficult. These clips are also louder than the originals. Volume has been increased. In some cases the audio track was separated and remixed in an audio editor to enhance the sound. The enhanced audio files are available for upload if requested.

Very cool music, as previous reviewer notes.

Not art deco, but still lovely to behold
It has nice colors and sweet retro music, but there's nothing specifically art deco about this intermission spot.
